Animal Instincts

by - Monday, October 03, 2011

The next Bloggers Do It Better challenge is all about animals. Prints? Textures? I rounded up two of my three animal-related items (faux fur vest with the snakeskin clutch) and went crazy with colors and texture pairings. Sorry for the sensory overload! Fall, I'm so ready for ya.

vest: Zara Girl fur waistcoat (sold here; similar; similar)
belt: J.Crew piped glitter (similar; similar)
rings: Forever 21 delicate etchings (similar); H&M filigree (similar)
clutch: H&M snake-embossed envelope (may still be in stores; similar)
shoes: Ann Taylor covered platform bootie (similar; similar)

  1. oh i never thought about adding faux fur into the mix but what a great idea! this outfit is lovely!

    cute & little

  2. We are faux fur twins today :) I love the pattern mixing in this outfit, and love how you made this skirt fall appropriate!

  3. How fun! I am so into faux fur and i think your take on this is perfect! Only a fashionista could pull off this outfit, I like the pink with the lighter fur color. Nice post


  4. The patter and texture mix is great Cee! And those booties are hot!

  5. I love the pink on pink! I don't have a neon pink gingham shirt but I have one that may match my Loft skirt...idea stealing now!

  6. The AT platform booties are sleek and gorgeous on you. They instantly add "Fall" to this outfit along with the faux fur. I must've said this before, I'm sure, but they look more expensive than Ann Taylor. I furiously scrolled down your post to see where they are from, and was surprised all over again that they were only AT.

  7. Totally agree with Jean from PetiteAsianGirl. This outfit is so fall-ready. Loving it!!

  8. Super cute Cee!! It looks like you are ready for fall, but saying your last goodbyes to summer! :)

  9. The gingham on print is an absolute revelation. I was just on J Crew today pondering some print and passed it up....I am a little sad that I did. Love the way you always mix things up.

  10. You did a great job with this challenge! I love those Ann Taylor booties. The kids fur vest looks great on you! Much better than on me!! : )

  11. ooooo love the faux fur, I can't wait to see how else you wear it! SO EXCITING!

  12. This is such a great mix. The skirt pattern is fantastic.


  13. This outfit is all kinds of awesome!!! Love the mix!!! Done to perfection! :)

  14. Love this outfit, I just posted my BDIB post. I love how you mixed a fall fur vest with the lighter prints and colors. It's such an interesting and cool look!

  15. Thank you all for your feedback <3

    @TaraMixandMatch - I don't know about you, but I plan on wearing my vest as much as possible this winter!

    @eek - Light pink gingham shirt? I wish mine was not as bright so there's more outfit contrast. Alas, I'm like a giant billboard, lol.

    @PetiteAsianGirl - I took your advice on the AT perfect pumps, then took a chance on these booties... I gotta say, AT sure makes some fabulous shoes. I'm hooked!

    @Noelani - I'm sorry to hear. If it's any consolation, J.Crew brings back gingham often in an assortment of colors. Do keep your eyes out!

    @The Little Dust Princess - Pshhh the fur vest looked great on you and you know it ;) I'm glad you found ones you love more in H&M!

    @Elle - Eh? I thought you (or am I thinking of someone else) didn't like faux fur? Or... are you slowly coming to the dark side? :)

  16. I am looking for booties but haven't found the perfect pair yet....I am currently drooling over yours...hehehee
